Solar Eclipse 2017
« on: December 29, 2017, 12:25:43 AM »
Hi Everybody -

Will any institutions or observatories be offering accessible live feeds showing the progress and totality of the upcoming solar eclipse? My library wants to incorporate such a thing into a program if it is available during the eclipse. Thanks!

Jerome

I'm sure there will be live feeds all over the net and Youtube.

I would bet NASA will live stream the eclipse.

Looks like watching a live stream is as close as I'll get to seeing it in totality. I won't be driving 800 miles to get a gander. This is all I'll see here in PA according to Stellarium.

Hardly a troll, just experienced with library programs. >Of course the weather will be a sure bet here in MICHIGAN. Entertaining elementary school kidswith no eclipse and no back-up plan is agreat way to show my limitations as an entertainer.

I wasn't saying you were a troll.

The idea of an amateur astronomer watching a rare total eclipse on video when its path of totality is only a few hours away makes me sad.

Oddly enough I'm driving 900 miles.

Not everyone will have the option of driving into the eclipse path. Being able to share it with others sounds like a great idea! I'm about 3-4 hours from the path of totality and I'm debating making the drive. I'm going to wait until we get close enough for reasonably accurate forecasts. If we're going to be clouded out (very likely based on averages) there's no point in worrying about it.

Well, you didn't "say" he was a troll, but you certainly laid it out as a possibility.

It wasn't a possibility that I called him a troll, because I didn't call him a troll.

Watching an eclipse on TV is nowhere near a substitute for seeing it in person. That needs to be made clear.

I don't think anyone would argue that. Some of us will only be able to see it this way though, so I'll take what I can get. I'll set up if it doesn't rain and get what I can though. It'll still be cool to watch.
